One of the greatest men I have ever known
I remember sharing a few shots of jagermeister at a Christmas party – we went shot for shot until he was MIA and found out he went to bed lol. Then for my wedding he came up to the table and placed a large bottle of jagermeister down and told me he was ready for a rematch.
I would call him and we would just chat about every and anything. I will miss those chats
He was my second father – I love him and will miss him dearly.
You will always be in my heart. When God picks an Angel it is for a reason, I just wish he would have waited on picking you. Love you Mr. Brooks
May you Rest In Peace
I didn’t know until now he was the son of the actor and comedian Foster Brooks that always put on skits playing someone drunk! Wow!
Dick was a great guy. He kept all the equipment in the Lackland fitness centers in maintained order and always friendly.
We had a great repoire. RIP!
